A standard subscription for GemStone IV costs $14.95 and comes with a single character slot. Additional character slots cost $2.50 each. Players will have access to all areas except Four Winds Isle (Mist Harbor) and the Premium halls in each town. Standard subscribers should look for events marked "Prime" on the official calendar for merchants and festivals they may attend.
Standard subscribers will also have access to one standard locker with only 50 items that they must pay a small fee for every time they visit, but may join a Great House to gain access to a larger (30 additional items), free locker. They may also freely join any Meeting Hall Organization and participate in any storyline not happening in Mist Harbor.
